Experience true Hoosier hospitality in Muncie, a welcoming, family-friendly environment for athletes and spectators.

From boating, fishing and swimming to campground facilities, Prairie Creek Reservoir presents over 750 acres of land to explore. This beautiful park is located approximately five miles southeast of Muncie, south of the White River. During your stay, be sure to visit one of many local attractions such as the Muncie Children’s Museum, Cardinal Greenway, Minnetrista Cultural Center, and the White River Greenway. Scotty’s Brewhouse is a favorite local spot and has a diverse menu with something for everyone to enjoy.

Athletes will begin with a 1.2-mile swim in the calm waters of Prairie Creek Reservoir. The 56-mile bike course takes athletes onto closed state highways for a flat ride through rural Indiana. The race finishes with a challenging run around the south side of the reservoir over rolling country roads.

This race offers 30 qualifying slots for the 2015 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.
